Description

From the top of the chairlift "TS Fontaines", to follow the "Cerf" red slopes for few meters then turn right more or less under the chairlift "TS Fontaines". This off piste does not have many hazards or other things to be worry, just some rocks and trees which can be a problem with low snow cover. Steepness is not present so there's no big risks of avalanche in this part of the mountain other than in the middle of the line where it is a little steeper. However as we are about 1500 meters this should not be a big issue. This area is often quickly tracked out. The chairlift is a good help to follow the line and as soon as the line finishes you will be at the top of the Green slope "Pingouin", where access to the same chairlift "TS Fontaines" is possible.
